Can the ps3 do everything a computer can do?

I have a ps3 for a year now, and i've been playing online for approximately 1 month. I've started using the playstation store and the internet and was wondering if i could print things. I found out you could, but how do u hook a printer up to it? and what kind of printer do you need? Once you have that, can u write essays using microsoft word? is there any way to download microsoft word? Any other cool things u can do on a ps3?

    The PS3 is pretty much a computer that cannot do any office funtions. You probably could find a way to mod a printer that would work with the PS3 but you wouldn’t really have anything to print. It HAS INTERNET just like a computer. You can type in urls and go to websites just like a computer. No I don’t think you can install Word onto it. You can voice chat with someone else who’s online like talking on a phone except on a PS3.

    Nop, it can’t do everything that a computer can. computer can do much more things then a PS3

    No the ps3 can do about 1/1000th of the things a pc can do. A ps3 cant play world of warcraft for a start ;)

    No you cant play games or get microsoft word but you can go on youtube and look at sites.

    You hook a printer up just like a bluetooth headset. Of course the printer has to be able to be wirelessly hooked up though. No, you can’t write essays on there or put PC programs on a PS3.

    No, a PS3 is not a computer.

    You couldn’t say everything, but it is close to that. Many people create what we programmers call “Home Brew” Where you basically create software for another product. Like the ps3! People can run linux on the ps3, you can also run windows, but im not sure about mac. It also has web cappabilites which makes it seem like it can do anything! It is lacking a few features, but it is way above and beyond The 360. Since you can put windows on there, you might be able to do printer. Also you could try blue tooth, just get an adapter (some ps3s have it build in, mine doesn’t though) then get one for your computer and transfer the data. This might take a while to research but i guess it’s worth the try!

    No you can’t use microsoft word. But you can print web pages. Read the manual to find otu more about that. i think you have to link it up via usb.Its definately nothing like using the computer. I’d stick to doing your work and stuff on the computer.

    With serious modification perhaps.
